So you're moving into a lovely new home or redecorating the dining room and you need the perfect dining furniture sets to bring this space to life? There are a number of factors to consider, but most importantly you're looking for dining furniture that fits nicely and looks fantastic. Perhaps there's a round dining table on eBay with your name on it. It's time to discover what's out there.
Round dining table materialsFirstly, let's talk about what your new or pre-owned dining table is really made of. It could be constructed from glass, timber, metal, marble or even a stylish combination of these materials. Think about the architecture and existing decor you have at home when making your decision.
StyleIf you thought you had options in materials, wait until you see the various classic and contemporary styles available. Apart from the round design, it really is a case of no two tables look the same. There are ornate pedestals, multiple column pedestals, beech wood leg bases, straight legs, tapered legs, steel supports, smooth seamless tops, hardwood tops, clear glass tops and so many other elements that give each piece its own personality. There are original designer styles and replicas. Pick a round dining table that's rustic, retro, modern Scandinavian, art deco, or sleek and on-trend.
SizeIt's very important to buy a dining table that won't dominate the room and will allow people to sit comfortably around it in your dining chairs. Round table top diameters typically range from approximately 80cm to 120cm, so there's certainly a significant gap from the smallest to the largest models. Height is usually less variable, with approximately 72-76cm considered a good practical height for any dining table. If necessary a flat packed dining table should always come with an assembly manual.
